[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#645165: xfce4: Keyboard shortcuts not working

Package: xfce4
Severity: normal

I was earlier using XFCE 4.6 when my keyboard shortcuts suddenly stopped
working.  This bug report https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5639 in the
XFCE bugzilla discusses this bug, suggests a fix for it and states that the
problem has been resolved in 4.7 onwards.  The fix worked for me in 4.6.
However, once I have upgraded to 4.8 from the testing repositories, the bug
remains and the fix no longer works.  In fact, every time I rename the file
xfce4-settings-helper-autostart.desktop as suggested, it gets recreated in my
~/.config/autostart directory.  Keyboard shortcuts set in XFCE do not work.
